Ole Kirk's Big Red Fire Truck

Everyone needs a big red fire truck

This set is inspired by an early wooden fire truck by Lego founder Ole Kirk Christiansen from the 1930s. This truck was recently featured on Lego’s Instagram channel alongside some of the other early wooden toys.

Some of the interesting details:
  • Simple colour scheme of bright red, silver, wood tone and yellow – similar to the original wooden toy.
  • Wheels, ladder and fire hose all operate.
  • Ladder uses basic Technic connectors so it can be angled up.
  • Fire hose uses a rope and is mounted on a reel for storage.
  • Firemen have turn of the century metallic silver uniforms.
